What's happening on the 18th Bridge ?
As all golfing members would have noticed, we have a major problem with the pipes under the 18th bridge. When we did the "head-wall" we were not aware of the extent of damage to the pipes further in, which only came to light when Damian, our Superintendent, fell through a hole gradually made worse by the recent surge of flood water. To rectify the damage, the pipes have been cleared, a 450mm sleeve pipe inserted inside the old pipes, reinforcing will be added to the break and whole lot buried in concrete. This will all be completed by our great ground staff at minimum cost and be a permanent solution to the problem. Task should be completed by the end of this week. The 3rd pipe you can see in the hole is not in use. With 900mm of pipe available, this will carry the majority of water coming from the dam. In the event of flood, water will go over the top or around the bridge, as designed, with out further damage.
